Space between fingers in palmistry

Post  asif amin on Sun Sep 19, 2010 8:58 am

According to M.A Malik author of "The New Horizon In Palmistry- 700 most revealing hands" mentioned in his book, published by Ferozsons Publisher - Lahore, Pakistan.

Space between Fingers

If the space between the first and middle finger is the widest, it reveals that you enjoy a good deal of freedom of thought, are independent in your outlook and have the courage to express your views without fears.

If the space between the middle and the third finger is the widest, it reveals that instead of being a prisoner of circumstances, you override them and are bold enough to turn them to suit your requirement and desires.

If the space between the third and the fourth (little finger) is the widest, it reveals that you are a self-willed and self-directing individual enjoying a high degree of freedom of action without being dictated by others under pressure.

hi Asif, thanks for posting another interesting topic! I like M.A. Malik's book.
I understand his approach to finger spacing, it is similar but slightly different to what I learnt & teach.

brief copies from my teaching notes:

Wide spaced water (index) finger - independent disposition, want to think for themselves, have their own opinions and be free from tradition, culture, environment, family influences.
Very wide space - trying to rebel too much, a confrontational thing. Can be attention seeking, or wanting to be noticed, achieve something (eg you see this when people are going for promotion at work etc)

Large space between earth and fire (middle & ring) fingers - rebellious, wants freedom of self-expression. (or (joke) Mr Spock Star Trek - The Vulcan Salute - "Live Long & prosper" Wink )

Wide spaced air (little) finger - freedom in ideas/ communication, want to think and understand independently of others, talkative, state their own opinions, less of a desire to harmonise with others views.
Although if it is wery widely spaced (twice as wide as other finger spacings) it is a much more complex psychology (about communication, relationships /sex) that has to be looked at in conjunction with the rest of the hand, basically needing their own space, to get away for a while, some "hermit" time.

interested to hear how other hand readers here interpret finger spacings.

According to Samudrik Tilak M.Katakkar author of " Encyclopedia of palm and palm reading - a treatise on palmistry" elaborates in his book

Space Between the thumb and the Jupiter fingers:

The thumb shows the will of the person. If the thumb is away from the finger of Jupiter, it must set low on the hand. This thumb does not lie close to the sides of the hand and thus leaves a great space between itself and the finger of Jupiter. When the thumb is naturally away from first finger, it will show a nature full of human qualities which are of a higher plan. As thumb is low set, it takes all the quality of the mount of Venus and thus creates a mind which shows warmth, sympathy and generosity. Such a subject loves independence, freedom, and liberty. He is always willing to help those in distress, though he may not be helpful from monetary point of view.

Space between Jupiter and Saturn fingers

If the space between the Jupiter and the Saturn fingers is wide, it means that the Jupiter finger is leaning towards the thumb and in doing so, it partakes the qualities of the thumb which are strong in ill-power and independent character. Thus, the pride of Jupiter combined with the will-power of the thumb produces a person who is independent in character. Thus, the pride of Jupiter combined with the will-opinion and is not logged down by the views of others.

Space between the Saturn and the Apollo fingers

While in keeping a wide space, the Apollo finger does not partake the qualities of the Saturn finger which have practical outlook, common sense, wisdom and balance of mind. Naturally, the subject is left to the characteristic of the Apollo finger, which shows talent, energy, sense of beauty and enthusiasm. In employing the energy, he does not possess the common sense of the Saturn, in appreciation of beauty, he does not partake the wisdom of Saturn and in using his talents, and he does not again the practical view point of the Saturn. Thus he is careless about the outcome of his energy, sense of beauty and talents. He does not peep into the future to see what advantage he will have with the qualities and merits inherent in himself. In short, he is careless about the future. He is of the “happy-go-happy” disposition.

Space between the Apollo and the Mercury fingers

When the space between the Apollo and Mercury fingers is wide. We shall know of a person who is independent in action. The finger of mercury being away from the hand, it shows Mercurian qualities which are shrewdness, energy and judgment. He is very energetic and therefore a man of action. He has sound judgment and relies upon his skill. Since he has the faculty of expression he can best exhibit it in action.

Equal spacing between the fingers

When the fingers are keeping equal space in between them, every finger will have the freedom to exhibit its qualities. A person with such equal spacing of fingers does not follow conventionality. He is a person independent in thought as well as in action. He will be easy to approach. According to the Hindu school of thought, large spacing between the first and second fingers, between the second and the third fingers and between the third and the fourth fingers shows constant sorrow in young age, middle age and old age as the case may be

Re: Space between fingers in palmistry

Hello Asif & Lynn,

In general I am a sceptical about the topic of 'finger positions' - simply because the position of fingers can vary a lot in time, and is probably also very signficantly related to the postion of the hand and arm.

And I also think that the theories about (indeliberate) 'finger postions' are much more speculative than the theories about (deliberate) 'hand gestures' - where the meaning highly depends on culture!

Lynn's reference to the famous 'Doctor Spock' gesture is a typical example of how the meaning of gestures really various among culture - this gesture became also known as the 'Vulcan salute'.

Doctor Spock - from the science fiction series 'Star Trek':

Essentially, the Vulcan salute is historically recognized as a 'blessing gesture' indeed (this relates to what Lynn described earlier):

Blessing gesture depicted on the gravestone of Rabbi and Kohen Meschullam Kohn (1739-1819):

By the way, my proposal would be to focuss this topic on the 'finger positions' - and we can discuss the 'hand gestures' (like the Mr. Spock example) in another topic.

A quote from:

"Finger gestures are almost always intentional. Whether you flash someone "the finger", or ask for silence, or pointing somewhere, it's certain that you meant to make that gesture. But some finger movements are unintentional. Examples of this are drumming with your fingers on the table, or putting your fingers over your mouth when you lie."

thinking But obviously... 'finger positions' in a handprint, hand photo or during a hand reading session - are usually unintentional as well; just like the example of the (unintentional) 'finger movements'.

And we should also be aware that some 'finger positions' are actually perfectly normal - which raises the question whether one should really want to apply any theory on any hand gestures that can basically be described as only natural.

I discuss hand and finger positions when I'm doing readings. Very often I will ask the person who is holding their thumb closely against the index finger or tucked into the palm to try the reverse - and hold it open. Or I will ask the person with their fingers all widely spread how it feels to hold them all closed together - etc. and etc.

Sometimes the fingers of the people who naturally and comfortably hold their fingers close together will tremble and twitch when they try to hold them apart for a short time.

People who naturally hold their fingers and thumbs more open report a feeling of weakness or withdrawn when they close theirs.

Each is comfortable in the moment with the position the fingers and palms are being held.

Although finger positions change with mood and of course body position, but I think there is a huge amount of information being presented in the spacing of the fingers and thumbs.
